all done

Mrs Beasley's Sampler Quilt BOM - very small quilt, but nearly 3 years in making. 

This time this wasn't down to me, but, as I said before, to having to wait for Leanne Beasley to publish Vignette magazine - supposed to be published every quarter, but which turnout to be very irregular; we had to wait 18 months for the latest issue.

So, there it is at last, hand quilted
 and now hanging on a bedroom wall.

This kind of project is my favourite one - 
a combination of patchwork, hand applique and embroidery.

This year I am not making any special Christmas project, just trying to get on with all those projects which are lurking in my work room.
I am waiting for the postman to bring me a fabric parcel, which will be a background for  
all those Fleurs du Mardi blocks.
In the meantime I am helping my granddaughter with her Christmas project.

But one has to think ahead to the new year :-),
a new project in the planning stage perhaps ?

I hope the run up to Christmas is not too hectic for you;
Christmas will come whatever you do (or don't)!
